I’m so excited to finally be sharing Mr. G’s first 48 session! At only one day new he had already stolen so many hearts – mine included. I was thrilled to spend more time with him and his family.
There are so many things to take in when your baby finally arrives. And when it’s your first child there are so many questions to ask, and unknowns to tackle. Why do his little hands turn purple? Is he cold? Is he hungry? Am I doing this right?!… You count each wrinkly finger and toe countless times, wondering at how alike and different he is from you and your partner. You breathe in his unique baby smell – thinking you’d be rich if you could find a way to bottle up the way it makes you feel… Such a whirlwind of emotions. And while all of these details consume your life in the beginning, it is but a brief moment in the story of your baby’s life and things will change all too quickly.
As I mentioned when sharing G’s birth session, I am honored to have captured a few precious moments and details of the beginning of his story – starting with his mama’s maternity session and continuing on through to his newborn session which took place when he was ten days new. I’ll be sharing a bit from that session later on, too.
Until then, here are some highlights from his fresh 48 session. Enjoy!
